ah, I found it. I just had to use the link!

Okay, so this song makes me feel really happy-emotional and nostalgic, which I guess is the point. It makes me miss times in my life when I could just look up at a blue sky in my backyard and not worry about anything. It also makes me nostalgic for the good ‘old times when I discovered MMT and listened to it a lot (when I was in 6th grade). That was like, a MAJOR turning point in my life. So yeh, I was a nostalgic at birth, I suppose.

... Hey Jude and Revolution though...

For the record, Penny Lane is a masterpiece. David Mason's trumpet is divine, and Paul's everything is fantastic. The lyrics make me super happy and bring back memories of me being around four and listening to Penny Lane and Nowhere Man (two of my favorite songs as a kid). A truly amazing song heart

Penny Lane has always been one of my all time favorite songs. The melody, the Norman Rockwell-type imagery, the melody, the piccolo trumpet - the whole package. (It doesn't hurt that it brings back wonderful memories of my being 13 years old, staying at my grandparents for the weekend, and playing Penny Lane / Strawberry Fields the entire time on their clunky record player.) And of course, these two songs were deliciously different from each other and from everything they'd done before.

'Meanwhile back' .......In Feb '67 I was 14.......Theses two songs are what made me a Beatles fanatic.

First heard the them, (partially), on Juke-Box-jury.......I think the Jury was out........ Especially for what seemed on first hearing the discordant Strawberry Fields ...... I could imagine Spock raising one eye-brow and  saying......'It's a pop song Jim, but not as we know it'

London was the centre of the world......It's image of bowler hats, rolled umbrellas, sparrows, costa mongers running up the apples and pairs......and pathetic Elvis Presley copyists ....... had evaporated like the London fogs. 'The Clean Air Acts' of  James Bond, the World Cup,The Beatles, Stones, Who and Kinks had worked miracles ...... and gave us spotty urchins reasons to be proud.....Even though none of it had anything to do with yours truly, I bought a college scarf and pretended I was a part of it.

Even bloody Englebert Humperdinck couldn't ruin things completely.

'Appy days'

I am a big fan of wistful nostalgia, and that’s what Penny Lane captures. Crocodile Rock is another good example I think (even if it’s in a more energetic way). I listened to that song for nearly eight hours on a plane trip recently.

Crocodile Rock brings nostalgia for me because I played it in the concert in front of 3000 people I did in September... Great experience, great memories.

On topic, Penny Lane is a great nostalgia trip for no real reason, it just sounds that way I guess. I wonder why? Is it the lyrics? Instrumentation? Chord progression?

Oh, by the way, this post was made by The Hole Got Fixed!

I don't know about instrumentation and chord progression, but the lyrics are basically pure nostalgia.

Agreed. They're just so... happy! But maybe with a tint of sadness that's it's all over now...
